This article is from Biology Letters , volume 9 . Abstract The use of human and veterinary pharmaceuticals is increasing. Over the past decade, there has been a proliferation of research into potential environmental impacts of pharmaceuticals in the environment. A Royal Society-supported seminar brought together experts from diverse scientific fields to discuss the risks posed by pharmaceuticals to wildlife. Recent analytical advances have revealed that pharmaceuticals are entering habitats via... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3730660

In many coastal regions, mean coastal atmospheric and water temperatures are projected to shift as climate change ensues. Interaction strengths between organisms are likely to change along with environmental changes, given interspecific heterogeneity in responses to physico-chemical variables. Biological interaction outcomes have the potential to alter food web production and trophic level biomass distribution. This is particularly pertinent for key species that are either abundant or play... Topics: Biogeographic zones, Climate change, Functional response, Mesopodopsis wooldridgei, Predator-prey,...
